Deal DetailsLast Edited by BostonGirl August 26, 2013 at 03:03 PM
Was looking for some other stuff at the HD website today and noticed that these bulbs are now listed as a "New Lower Price" at $4.97. That's even cheaper than the Cree bulbs. The Philips ones have almost no hum with dimmers, and the skinnier neck means they fit in more fixtures than the Cree. They're also rated at 830 lumens, which is slightly brighter than the Cree's 800.
Camel says the lowest this bulb has been in the last year is $14.97, and that's the current price on Amazon. When I went in to pick them up at my local store, I glanced at the in-store signage where those bulbs are; and it, too, said they were $4.97. The price does vary by store, so if your preferred store is more expensive, you may have to pick a store that has the cheaper price and then select inventory from another store for pickup. One zip code that has the $4.97 price is 98003.
In any case, I've now installed them in several fixtures, and they look quite nice. Good omnidirectional light and appropriate brightness for a 60W equivalent.
